Hey ladies! Not been on in a while. Just up doing the night feed so thought I would reply lol. Aw Chicago that Halloween pic looks fab haha! Bet teddy loved it. Zack was a little sheriff woody for Halloween he looked adorable.

Oh wow ask you are brave trying again already lol! Me and DH havenít DTD yet since we had baby. Iím still too scared haha! Got my 6 week post natal check today though and my mum is taking Zack overnight for the first time tomorrow so as long as everything looks okay at my check I think tomorrow will be the night...

Oh no I donít have the appointment in for his jags yet but Iím dreading it! Couldnít take my daughter for any of hers as I just canít stand hearing that piercing cry! My hubby will need to take the day off to take him.

Are any babies sleeping through the night yet? Zack goes down at 8.30pm and has gone until 5/5.30 on occasion before waking but generally he tends to get up at 3 for a feed then back down till 7. My daughter slept through from 3 weeks old so this is a bit of a shock to the system for me lol! X

I have Teddy in the bed more often than DH lately . Sex is honestly the last thing on my mind, I wasn't interested for a long time after Ted's birth either. My midwife suggested an IUD because we really don't want any accidents, and I really should schedule it before we downgrade our insurance in January, but I'm so unmotivated.

Valentine is a great sleeper, for now. She often doesn't settle in for the night until later (we're all night owls here), but she'll usually sleep about 8 or 9 hours before waking up for milk, then she'll sleep a few more. Every few nights there's a random middle of the night wakeup. Teddy slept really well at this age too, though he needed a little more help with a hand on his chest or something every couple hours - Valentine just sleeps. It didn't last with Teddy and he was a poor sleeper for a couple years so I'm not getting my hopes up with Val, just enjoying it while it lasts.

Hey ladies. So hubby and I had sex for the first time on sat. I had only went back on the pill the day before and the doctor told me we must use extra contraception for the first 7 days but we had both had a few drinks as we had our first baby free night out together and just got caught up in the moment. Iím now terrified in case I end up pregnant again! I know the chances are slim but I just keep thinking it would be our luck that we tried for 6 month to fall pregnant with both kids and then bam, we have 1 slip up and end up pregnant again... x

Have you gotten your period yet? Probably not as you just had your 6-week check. Yikes - here's hoping you don't have a surprise on your way!

Have to say I'm a bit jealous of your good sleepers. Did you do anything to encourage that or did it just happen? Chloe goes down around 7, and then is usually up twice, once around midnight and once around 4. I know this is NOT BAD at all (my older was much worse), but I'm starting to feel as though I'll never have another full night's sleep again. (my older is 13 months and still wakes twice)

Chloe actually STTN last Thursday.. but I'm not sure as that counts because that was after a bizarre evening where she cried literally from 5 - 11p. So... it was a fail/win.

No my period hasnít came back yet. Iím keeping everything crossed we are okay.

Well Zack is now sleeping from 9pm until 7am and itís because heís now on formula. I gave up bfíing last week because he was feeding constantly between 6pm and bedtime for some reason which I was struggling with. My DH was also struggling with it because he doesnít get in from work until after 6 and obviously wanted cuddles with baby but he just would just cry wanting more milk. It meant my DH wasnít getting any quality time with him and I really felt for him. So as of 5 days ago heís been completely formula fed and has slept through every single night.

I also have a rule where unless he really cries during the night I just ignore him. Sometimes heíll wake and thrash about a bit or just make little crying noises just looking for attention so I ignore him and he settles himself. Hope you guys can get the sleep routine sorted soon. It really is hard not getting a proper sleep x

We do both b-milk and formula. I was considering trying to time the formula so that she'll always end the day with formula bottles in hopes that that helps with the night time sleeping.. however my older was 100% formula and she's still not sleeping straight through.

Bleh.. they'll sleep by the time they're 5... right?

Yeh I know other who have formula fed babies who havenít slept either so itís either a coincidence or itís the formula thatís made him sleep through, who knows! I gradually weaned him on to bottles and it didnít make a difference when he was on both but literally the first day he had formula all day he slept right through and has done every night since x

Good luck, Tess! It's possible to get pregnant that early but unlikely, I think. Maybe you can pick up an ovulation test to reassure yourself you're not ovulating.

Good sleep here is just luck, I think. Sometimes she's swaddled and sometimes she's in a zipadeezip and she sleeps about the same both ways. Teddy slept through the night early too, but he was a more restless sleeper, I had to replace his pacifier and pat his chest now and then. Valentine is sometimes hard to get down but she sleeps solidly. Teddy stopped sleeping around six months and didn't start again until I night weaned him around five months pregnant. I'm not getting my hopes up with Val, though it would be nice. I've heard inconsistent things about formula and sleeping through (mine have both been EBF), but if you're using it anyway it can't hurt to try before bedtime and see if it helps.

Hi! How is everyone? Question regarding naps- what's your schedule/routine like? How long does your LO sleep for?
